Starting to harvest winter squash

 

September will soon be over and it is time to get the winter squash harvested, cured, and into storage for the long winter ahead of us. Today I began harvesting some of the squash. There are 30 butternut squash and so far 20 Hubbard type winter squash harvested. These and the next squash harvested will be spread out on a platform in the sun to harden their skins before I take them indoors to a cool corner of the basement.
